1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: My Little Pony - Big McIntosh Felt Applique Hoop on: June 01, 2014 09:16:55 AM
Awesome! I love MLP:FIM, and I should totally make some of these for my daughter's wall, or maybe for my own craft space. Wink

Thanks, everyone! It really was a lot of fun, and my six year old has colors picked and pieces cut for another one that we'll sew together!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ok, here's one I'm proud of! Yeti friend! on: January 04, 2014 12:09:25 PM
Here's another plush I made while learning to make them better! He's my new yeti friend, and I told the kids he's Mommy's!  Grin

I found the tutorial looking for something cute to make, and I love him! He was fairly easy to make, and I finally figured out how much stuffing actually needs to go into something! (a LOT! Thanks, stuffie book and experience!)
The tutorial is here if I can post that. http://crafts.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-make-a-kawaii-yeti-monster-plush-softie--craft-8553  You can also google Kawaii yeti tutorial and find it. Next up, learning How To Photograph!  Wink
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mooshy bunny! AKA a learning experience. on: January 04, 2014 11:59:54 AM
Now that I have a few more plushies under my belt, I've learned that I really REALLY like making them! I also love to look at patterns for them, and learning about the construction and techniques that go into making them! I bought myself a book about them, and some tools (hemostats ftw!) and am embarking on a journey to learn more and gain more experience! (and maybe even sell some patterns of my own someday, waaay down the road.  Wink )

I'm starting by getting more experience just by following others' patterns first. Here's my first attempt at a bunny pattern I've been eyeing for a while.

You can find the pattern by googling "mooshy bunny tutorial". It's made from one of my three year old's old shirts. I learned about how I really should use more stuffing, and not rush face placement and being done by using a sharpie.  Wink It was a lot of fun, and I still love it!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Skitty attempt for my daughter! on: January 04, 2014 11:47:52 AM
I made custom plushies for my kids for Christmas this year. My youngest fell in love with Skitty when she was watching Pokemon with her brothers, and started relating everything to Skitty. Things became known as Skitty-colored, for Skitty, and Skitty's favorite, among other things. I had been planning on making her a pony, but my husband made sure I made a Skitty for my daughter. It was definitely the better choice. She LOVES her Skitty. I couldn't find patterns, so I mostly winged it. I definitely learned a lot making Skitty, and will do a better job next time. In the mean time, she has a Skitty she loves, and I didn't kill myself being a perfectionist during Christmastime! (My biggest problem is just that Skitty turned into a longcat!  Wink )

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pika pi! Pikachu pillow for my son for Christmas! on: January 04, 2014 11:31:54 AM
I made custom plushies for each of my kids this year, and my kids have been enjoying Pokemon lately. My middle son's favorite is Pikachu, and my husband suggested that I make him a pikachu pillow instead of a plush, so that he can have a special pillow, too (my eldest has a creeper pillow I made him). Pikachu was a lot of fun to plan, and I'm pleased with how he turned out!

How fun! I enjoy making custom gifts for hard to shop for people, too, and I hope she liked it! Also, go you for posting! Smiley
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is artwork less 'art' when it is made with Copic markers? on: November 27, 2013 07:34:25 AM
I admit it! I did it! I used to be a little snobby and skeptical about photoshop and things when they first starting becoming more popular! I just really like the feel of other materials in my hands, and like to be very hands on with art. I was also a teenager. ;P Now I'm smarter, though, and really respect and admire the work others do in photoshop and the like, even if I don't use it myself, which is mostly because I don't have it or a graphics tablet (or other fancy device that would let me make art with the way that I work best electronically) and also haven't learned it. Right now it seems like an intimidating learning curve to me, and also I just don't want to invest that way right now, time or money or brain space. Anyway, the point is, some people might think that way, but they can just get over it, and it's mostly a personal problem. Wink
